They say a monk first took beer on a picnic in a wine bottle, forgot about it and discovered it much later. To his surprise, the dark tinted bottle kept the beer very fresh, more so than any other storage method.
Green beer bottles can be dated back to at least 1850 and they stayed green until the 1930’s, when it was discovered that brown bottles filtered out some light that prevented the beer from going “skunky.” It’s not called “skunky” because it smells bad, it’s called that because if you expose beer to light for long enough, it will actually smell like a skunk. Chemists at the University of North Carolina and Ghent University in Belgium found that sunlight breaks down alpha acids in hops that react with sulfur to make a chemical that is nearly identical to the smelly chemical that skunks spray.
